Praise God for God’s mighty deeds; praise God for God’s excellent greatness!
Praise God with trumpet sound; with lute and harp!
Praise God with tambourine and dance; with strings and pipe!
Praise God with clanging cymbals; with loud clashing cymbals!
Let everything that breathes praise God!
Be filled with the Spirit, as you sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, singing and making melody to God in your hearts, giving thanks to God at all times and for everything in the name of Jesus Christ.
Psalm 98:1, 4-8
O sing to God a new song, for God has done marvelous things.
Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth; break forth into joyous song and sing praises.
Sing praises to God with the lyre, with the lyre and the sound of melody.
With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before our mighty God.
Let the sea roar, and all that fills it; the world and those who live in it.
Let the waves clap their hands; let the hills sing together for joy.
2 Chronicles 5:13
The trumpeters and musicians joined in unison to give praise and thanks to God. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, the singers raised their voices in praise to God and sang:
“God is good; God’s love endures forever.”
I waited patiently for God;
God inclined to me and heard my cry.
God lifted me out of the desolate pit, out of the mire and clay;
and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure.
God put a new song in my mouth,
a song of praise to our God.
